Making social anxiety glamorous, Introflirt is a soundtrack for the insecure. As musicians and models, they’re confident and suave - there’s no doubt about that. But underneath the serious synth pop, classy aesthetics, and retro appeal, Introflirt is just as awkward as you.
But isn’t awkwardness an obstacle? No, says Introflirt. It’s an advantage. Introflirt invites listeners to embrace the freedom that being comfortable with awkwardness allows. With Introflirt, being an outsider means being an insider.
With their suspenders and jumpsuits, Introflirt’s retro charm isn’t just a passive aesthetic choice. Their self-described “croonwave” style is a result of founder & singer Ben Benjamin spending countless weekends in an Oakland piano bar, honing his chops with mid-century jazz standards, realizing a vintage flair and rich vocal technique rarely heard in electronic music. Apply that to dark, shifty-eyed beats and swirling synth riffs - performed by Vafa - and you get croonwave.
